at the moment this is a neutral post .. i paid them a visit in person this past sunday night, only a 9hr roadtrip .. there were some sob stories about the fires(evacuations) & illness, & i got a promise that they're going to try to rectify all the poor communications & delayed parts very soon including the return of some of my parts.
at the moment, i certainly can't recommend anyone doing any dealings with them, but hopefully they'll make good on their promises and everyone will get their stuff back. they are huge gti-fans & it's a shame it's come to this.

well..............i've dealt with Lars before and they are nice people. i'm not sure what happened since Lars stopped his email communication. although i have some parts stuck with them, i'm hopeful that Lars will straighten everything out.

You paid Lars a visit and still didn't get your stuff? That speaks volumes man. Until I get my stuff from him he's still a thief in my eyes. I lived up to my end of the deal with him and I know damn good and well it doesn't take 7 months to deliver a t/b. It will definitely be interesting to see if Lars lives up to his word to you and people start getting their parts. I won't hold my breath. :evil:

He is a thief and lier. Anyone dealing with GTi Couple is crazy.

word, however, a shocking update, a couple weeks ago they emailed me saying that they had shipped my parts back to me, i was a bit skeptical, and a week & a half passed, i tried calling canpar, who said they needed a tracking # .. i tried gticouple again .. oh they needed my phone# they emailed back (of course it was in every email i'd sent them) so i waited another week .. & it actually arrived, shipped out less than 2 days ago of course, but it arrived.
7 months they had all my parts to copy & take molds off of in exchange i have one machined tb & the privelege of getting my parts back.

i hope no-one else ever makes the same mistake i did.

Best thing to do with them, if your crazy enough to deal with them, is to get parts COD. If they won't do that don't waste your time with them.

I bought a TB from them about a year ago. They said, it was sent, but never arrived. Then he promised to send another one, that was on December 2002. Never received it and didn't bother asking what happened. I don't know what happened but Lars seemed to be a honest guy.

Dealt with them (him mostly) and can only say that I'm glad the deal did close....albeit 6 months after the fact!

Been over a year... and I have nothing back from them that I was supposed to get. They have a few motors of mine and the whole situation is made worse by the fact they pretended to be the nicest people on earth to get them. I will persue this within my means if nothing comes back as this isn't something people should just simply 'get away' with.
